With over a decade of professional experience, Alex is one of the leading adventure photographers working today. His client list includes most of the outdoor companies you would expect: Patagonia, Garmin, Arc'teryx, Black Diamond, Mountain Hardwear, Petzl, Millet, Montane, Vaude, etc, but also Nissan, BMW, Microsoft, Scandinavian Airlines, the International Olympic Committee, Novartis and many others. On the editorial side, his work has been published in Outside, GEO, Alpinist, Vertical, Montagnes Magazine, Climbing, Rock and Ice and, most importantly, El Penguino, the newspaper for Punta Arenas, Chile!

Though he certainly stays at home a lot more now that he has kids, Alex doesn't shy from a good adventure. Past ones have included soloing a big wall in Yosemite, sailing around Cape Horn, climbing on K2, making several first ascents and first descents in Greenland (naming some of the peaks along the way), capturing the elite PGHM mountain rescue unit in its vertical work, being invited to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in Dadaab Refugee Camp, photographing the Rio Olympics from the sidelines, and many more.

Through his career, Alex has strived as an educator as much as a photographer. Back in the prehistorical year 2010, he wrote an entire intro to photography for Reddit, in 30 lessons, which has now been taken, completely free and ad-free, by tens of thousands of people all over the world and lives on in www.r-photoclass.com. Since 2018, he has also been offering completely free one on one portfolio reviews and single mentorship sessions. He has led multiple adventure photography workshops, especially through the Chamonix Alpine Academy.

After a decade in Chamonix, France, Alex now lives in Canmore, Alberta, at the gates of Banff National Park, with his wife and two children.
